I know it's been a while, so you really will have to forgive me. The winding-down of the year is accompanied with a litany of things to be done, including preparing to end the year in style, and getting over-and-done with other work-related issues.
Back to this scene, which is a typical scene all across the country among itinerant vendors. Though this lady is more a non-itinerant one (in the sense that she can re-locate her stuff, rather than walking up and down the streets of Accra and through traffic), she continues to serve the purpose of offering food...even at the taxi rank of Accra Mall!!
In this specific case, kelewele (pronounced kay-lay-way-lay), which is, in essence, fried, ripe plantain (generally sweet), with ginger. You can occasionally take it with peanuts as a meal. Sometimes, people take it as dessert!
Either way, it's a very tasty snack, heavy on the oily side, but nonetheless, to-die-for!
